Rise Up | Blake Forry

Epic Athlete Blake Forry of Maryland Twisters Reign isn’t only being featured by the Epic Brands this month but graced the cover of Inside Cheer magazine! We couldn’t be more proud. After having the chance to meet Blake at our Under Armour Epic Athlete shoot we know of the kind, enthusiastic and very talented young man that he is.

When we asked how he Rises Up, Blake spoke about the challenges he faced when transitioning from school cheer to All Star. He noted how strict All Star was considering the competitive nature. He told us, “It was hard to get used to but I got the hang of it quickly!”

Blake also had to make a major time commitment to his gym driving over two hours each way for practice three times a week. He felt held back by only participating in school cheer so it was a necessary decision. Thanks to his families support and belief in his talent, he was able to fulfill this commitment and therefore become a better athlete. His biggest supporter and role model is his mom. He told us, “She was always on the go with her job and she always found time for me and my brothers. She always told us to follow our dreams.” In return, Blake seeks to be a role model himself. He wants to instill confidence in younger athletes and continue the manta, “You can do anything you want!” We couldn’t agree more Blake. Welcome to the Epic Athlete family!
